Entanglement: The Greatest Mystery in Physics by Amir D. Aczel

Since cyberspace became reality, the lines between "science" and "science fiction" have become increasingly blurred. Now, quantum mechanics promises that some of humanity's wildest dreams may be realized. Serious scientists, working from Einstein's theories, have been investigating the phenomenon known as "entanglement," one of the strangest aspects of our strange universe. According to Einstein, quantum mechanics required entanglement — the idea that subatomic particles could become linked, and that a change to one such particle would instantly be reflected in its counterpart, even if separated by a universe. Einstein felt that if quantum theory could produce such bizarre effects, then it had to be invalid. But new experiments show that not only does it happen, but that it may lead to unbreakable codes, and even teleportation, perhaps in our lifetime.

True And Impossible (Seeming). How can two particles, separated by nearly 11 kilometers, respond to one another more than 10 million times faster than the speed of light?! The answer is quantum entanglement (a term first coined by Erwin Schrodinger). It is all explained here, the cutting edge of physics exploration of the fundamentals of quantum mechanics. Very readable; a must for science nuts from jr. high age on up. My only gripe is the poor editing: some page numbers are mixed up -- maybe proof of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle on the macro scale.

One of the most well written books on science without all the overly technical clutter or mathematics. An interesting collection of accounts that was well researched and easily understood without putting you to sleep. Hard to put down. The potential impact on future technology is huge! "Beam me up Scotty!"
